It all begins with a desire and a thirst for adventure. A love of God and all that he has created in his image. Whether it is the crunching of leaves under hoof, the beating of feathers and wings locked up, the calming song of our favorite stream or gentle rocking of life on a lake, all have one thing in common. The experience of life afield.  

All true outdoorsmen would agree that our time afield is about the experiences we gain, and not the kill, that drive us. The kill becomes an epilogue that adds to the stories told, but at the heart of every day afield are the experiences that stick with us forever.  The smells, sounds and moments that embed themselves with us forever.

Far to often in our what about me society, individuals allow various barriers to keep them penned inside their homes. Most often that barrier is simply no one has ever asked them to go shooting, hunting, fishing, hiking, boating or just spend time afield. Closely behind at number two, is they lack core knowledge necessary to participate in the activities that we all love.  

Enter #eachoneteachone. The goal of #eachoneteachone is to have every outdoorsmen, regardless of their passion to introduce one person to the outdoors in 2018. We all reminder the feeling we had the first time we shot clays, unleashed an arrow, felt the tug at the end of a wet line, or hiked to that spot that took our breath away. Regardless of age, whether you are 5 or 95, it begins a healthy love affair with the outdoors that lasts a lifetime. One that Chasinwhitetailsencourages individuals to better themselves through education, stewardship and conservation. 

In 2018 we encourage you to share your passion with someone new. When you do take someone new afield , use the #eachoneteachone and share the story. We will be adding resources to Chasinwhitetails.com to help aid you in introducing friends and family members to the outdoors.

We also welcome your stories, tips, photos and will share them on chasinwhitetails.com and our partner organizations. Feel free to email them to Rick@chasinwhitetails or myself steve@chasinwhitetails.com. We also be working with other groups to help continue to grow all that we are passionate about.
